Criticising the TMC govt in West Bengal for allegedly opposing pro-people policies of the Centre, Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman on Sunday said the state could not be made a beneficiary of the 'Garib Kalyan Rojgar Abhiyaan', as it had not provided any data on migrant labourers.
Addressing a virtual rally for the people of Bengal, the Union finance minister also slammed Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for 'her reluctance to allow Shramik Special train services in the state'. Sitharaman said, six states have shared data on migrant workers, following their return. West Bengal, did not.
Senior TMC leaders had recently criticised the Union government for not making the state a beneficiary in the 'Garib Kalyan Rojgar Abhiyaan', a job scheme for migrant labourers.
